His geographical area of practice is generally throughout the West, with extensive work in Nevada, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Colorado, and Utah. He taught mining law, water law, and other law subjects at the University of Utah Law School from 1948 until about 1960. This also included teaching a course in law for engineers and architects and a course in law for the graduating medical class. He was chairman of the Water Law Commit tee of the Natural Resources Section of the American Bar Association for approximately five years; a Council member for three years; and chairman of the Section in 1976-197 7. Currently, he is a member of the Board of Litigation of Mountain States Legal Foundation. John A. Dracup is a professor in the Civil Engineering Department, School of Engineering and Applied Science, UCLA. His professional interests and expertise are in the fields of hydrology and water resource systems engineering. Recent research work has involved the statistical analysis of hydrologic droughts, the modeling of ground-water systems, the analysis of flash floods in ungaged watersheds, the optimization of energy use in urban water districts, and the hydrologic analysis of an alpine watershed under acid deposition stress. Prior to his association with UCLA, he was a member of the faculty of Oregon State University and an instructor -122-
